Freeze warning issued for Jackson County

 Posted: 12:00 PM April 08, 2013

Freezing temperatures are expected in the Rogue Valley overnight, prompting the National Weather Service to warn that sensitive plants could be harmed.

The weather service's Medford office issued a freeze warning that will be in effect from 2 to 8 a.m. Tuesday across Jackson, Josephine and eastern Curry counties.

Low temperatures are expected to dip as low as the mid 20s overnight. A weak temperature inversion also will be present Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service warning said.

These temperatures can damage or kill crops and other sensitive plants, weather officials reported.
